Regional Coordination Centre for South-East Europe

18.07.2019

The three transmission system operators (TSOs) of the South-East Europe Capacity Calculation Region (CCR) – TSCNET shareholder Transelectrica from Romania, ESO from Bulgaria and IPTO from Greece – have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on establishing a Regional Coordination Centre (RCC). The memorandum emphasises the ambition of the TSOs to strengthen regional cooperation and thus contribute to the safety and efficiency of the European transmission system.

The agreement provides a cooperation framework between the three contracting parties with the common objective of finding a mutually acceptable solution for the implementation of an RCC on the principle of meeting the requirements of the Third European Energy Package and the Clean Energy for all Europeans Package as efficiently, effectively and timely as possible. The MoU sets a time frame for the core decisions. The SEE capacity calculator is to be determined as early as 4 August 2019 and the necessary documents for the founding of the RCC are to be signed by the end of the year.
